Power Kids

Saturday, July 3, 2010

If you miss the days when movies could beat kids like rented mules, NYAFF 2010 offers you POWER KIDS, a spine-snapping blockbuster for ages K-12. It’s the heartwarming story of four preteen Muay Thai enthusiasts who come together in the spirit of friendship to kick terrorist ass. Facing off against superstar Johnny Tri Nguyen (The Rebel) in an action bonanza produced by Panna Ritikrai and Prachya Pinkaew (the masterminds behind Chocolate, the Ong-Bak series, and the rise of Tony Jaa), our young heroes infiltrate a rebel-infested hospital to get a sick little friend a new heart – by any means necessary, including kicking hapless American stuntmen in the junk over and over until they piss blood (no, seriously). Cracking skulls with killer knees and elbows, ripping the plumbing out of the walls and immolating bad guys with Molotov cocktails, the Power Kids are the mutant love children of Die Hard and Bugsy Malone. If you like to see kids thrown face-first through plate glass windows, then you’ll love…POWER KIDS.
